Course Outline

We will examine internationally important current events and emerging trends through the use of English texts and videos adapted for language learners. Topics will be drawn from daily news and will likely include cultural, economic, political, and technological events. Students will gain practice in writing well-structured summaries and paragraph-length reflections on those texts and videos.
